Cigar Box Guitars: the ultimate DIY guide for makers and players


1 Like

I bought this book last year. Had a great time making 3 guitars with my kids.

I have a cigar* box guitar (a four string) but as a novice guitar player I’ve been struggling to find a good intro guide or chord book. Can anyone recommend?


After that, it’s just guitars all the way down.



Thought you might be interested this place in New Alexandria PA is a tavern that is decorated in Cigar Box guitars and they play and built them there. (About 30 miles E of Pittsburgh on US RT 22).


I have made 3 single string fretless “Canjo’s”. must hunt for a cigar box for my next build. Thanks MF!
